Prepare Dinner in HALF the Time

Time is such a precious gift. Never did I understand that more than after I had kids.

That's why I'm dedicating this week to "time saving" tips for eating healthy.

Why?

Because I quickly realized when my 2nd son was born that if I didn't start implementing good "time saving" strategies right away, eating healthy and exercising were going to be really, really difficult to keep up with.

I already shared my leftovers strategies earlier this week. If you missed that you can read it here:

Healthy Leftovers = Excellent Time-Saver

Today I wanted to give you 2 others that have become absolute life savers...ok, maybe not life savers, but definitely dinner savers!

The crockpot is my best friend.

Crockpot

Whoever invented this wonderful piece of equipment deserves a thank you card from every busy person in the world. I am convinced you can throw an old shoe in there and it will somehow make the whole house smell wonderful and turn out to be a perfect dinner. Ok, ok, I'm exaggerating, but I can throw just about any meat, chicken, or pork in the crockpot along with some veggies, chicken stock, and a few spices and dinner is ready when I get home from work. How easy is that? Many nights I will get all my crockpot food items ready in the evening so I can just throw them all in in the morning and just turn the thing on. If you're a crockpot newbie, try this delicious and super easy recipe: Slow-Cooked Chicken.

Hard-boiled eggs are also my best friend.

Hard Boiled Eggs

Yes, I should probably make friends outside of my kitchen, but hard boiled eggs are another great lifesaver...I mean dinner-saver. In a pinch, I love to make an egg + avocado + greens salad, where I chop 2 hard-boiled eggs and 1/2 avocado over a salad of romaine lettuce and tomatoes. I top it off with my famous salad dressing, and dinner is served...super easy and very filling. Here’s another wonderful recipe that can be made in minutes: Egg Salad.

With just a little forethought, you can always be sure to have your healthy foods and meals available even when time is limited.

Definitely try these delicious recipes and I'll be back with some more "time saving" tips.
